Whimsical Decanter by Fratelli Toso created circa 1960.
Decanter is of simple form with applied features resembling that of a sad dog, pleading coyly with upturned eyes.
The clear green glass body has opaque lines running down from the top of the neck of the bottle to just below the top of the dogs ears and eyes. The dogs eyes lattimo (milk) glass with green glass pupils looking upwards. Nose, mouth and ears are a darker clear green glass.
The stopper has a green ball cased in clear glass to form the neck of the stopper. The stopper is not ground.
The neck of the bottle has some chips and the neck of the stopper also has a chip and a small bruise, due to the damage the piece is best used for display only.
The decanter stands 11 inches (27.9 cm) tall with the stopper. The bottle alone stands 9 inches (22.8 cm) tall and is approximately 5 inches (12.7 cm) in diameter overall.
